Tim! I love this video! I was wondering... what is one intriguing, brief, and somewhat specific question that you can ask someone to get a picture about who they are? I am asking because I am trying to think of an idea for an autobiographical essay, so this would be a little different than the types of questions you were talking about in your video. I have some ideas (e.g., what was one of the best days of your life?), but you are the master of questions so I thought I'd pick your brain if I could!
YES smart questions are very indicative of a smarter person! 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 & 𝐄𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐒𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐥 𝐒𝐔𝐁𝐒𝐂𝐑𝐈𝐁𝐄𝐑 𝐆𝐎𝐀𝐋 𝟔𝟏𝟓/𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎

The b camera isn't doing it for me. It looks like you are trying too hard. Use it when you need a different composition, like if you pick up something or point to something.

Why am I reading these comments. People giving advice to Tim >_<
The Content Wrangler (1 year ago)
I know. It's ridiculous and some of these people have way too much time on their hands.

Great points. Better questions=better life!
Audric Chabert (1 year ago)
Very nice video but the intro is a bit loud. Keep up!

lol someone doesn't know how to color correct you're all red in one shot and totally pale in the other
Michael Gainer (1 year ago)
Biggest takeaway for me was: Study great interviewers like Tim, Oprah, Tom Bilyeu, Lewis Howes,Joe Rogan, Larry King, etc.
Nashville Johnson (1 year ago)
This sounds interesting. I will give it a go. Thanks.
Oni Berugu (1 year ago)
that is valuable advice, thank you

Huge fan of the podcast and must say I really love these short bite-size segments. Sometimes jumping into a 2 hour+ podcast on a foreign subject can be a bit intimidating. Thanks for all of the content that you put out (and it's a freaking lot of content at that). Would love if there could be "highlights" or some preface available on newly released, longer podcasts (similar to what tools of titans is). Best wishes with the new launch, and I will be picking up an audio book since I no read good. - Bb

You remind me of Kane from C and C, repeat after me “in the name of kane, Kane lives in death”

Hey Tim, one suggestion because its a common theme throughout my friend circle - we love audiobooks!  We find audiobooks a more efficient and enjoyable means of plowing through content during commute times when normally you would be checking e-mail or listening to music etc. Please, for the love of God, make this into an audiobook! Also, I'll reward you extra badass points if you use your own voice :)

Thank you, TIm! I am in the process of training myself to ask better questions. I appreciate your offering of this information. And, btw, after reading some comments I feel compelled to mention, of course you shouldn't give a fuck what any of us say about your hair styling choices, but for what it is worth, I think you are as sexy as ever.

I respect Tim because he took the addage " those that cannot be master's, teach" and actually became a master teacher.
Julian Ryan (1 year ago)
I don't know if Tim talks about this in other video/podcast (if thats the case sauce please), but i just want to know after seen this one. What's being successful for him? (In less than ten words of course) Thanks :^)

I have notice you lost some weight and muscle mass. Are you on a new diet if so what is it?

In the very beginning of Episode 271 of Ask Gary Vee podcast, he mentions fasting. He just got back from a 10 day silent retreat and he fasted for 5 of the days

Lose the goatee, you look like you play drums in a metal band.
therushindoll (1 year ago)
Or you could just continue to do whatever you want as is your body
Ferenc Gyurcsány (1 year ago)
i’m confident we’ll see tim playing drums in a metal band soon

It's perfectly fine! Successful people know better than to judge one by their appearance.

thsu8 both, i guess

Also, did he shave his head or did he go bald?

Would be nice to have Tim interact with fans that comment... or at least automate that ;) Love you Tim!

Feedback for future videos: If you’re using multiple camera angles, make the footage is color corrected between both. The side angle in this video doesn’t match the color temperature or contract of the primary video angle.

These videos are great, glad you're on youtube. Keep it coming
Samir Nazim (1 year ago)
I'm seeing the push to Youtube Tim and I like it. I've noticed you've started upping the video quality. As a viewer, I would recommend focusing on your delivery - adding visual aid and enhancing your delivery. A visual aid can be something as simple as providing examples from podcasts of good questions (ie. evidence). Utilizing editing to smoothen your delivery, or even changing your tone (ie. Philip DeFranco does this good). Or simply some more visuals to make the lesson easily digestible (ie. Add text/subtitles to enhance the tips)
Andrew Ansley (1 year ago)
Pretty sure Tim has the worlds best at his disposal and he definitely has advisors on this, soooo...
Jake Pang (1 year ago)
agreed, not everything has to be the jump cut fast editting - there is a place for long form content
FoodTechLife (1 year ago)
Hmm I see nothing wrong with the current method he’s using while expressing the topic. I dislike Philip Defrancos presentation style. Too much cutting.
Samir Nazim (1 year ago)
I know you're a self-proclaimed introvert, and these editing tips can leverage that disadvantage to a huge win. For reference, use Gary Vee for delivery tips and Casey for editing.
Jefferson Wolfe (1 year ago)
Is there any psychological/social advantages of having a beard to not having one? Is this a pattern that people see and apply or nothing other personal choice/self image?
